    Getting My First Utrics...Advice?

    Just today I ordered:
    U. Livida
    U. Sandersonii
    U. Blanchetii
    U. Puescens

    I aim to just growing them on a sunny windowsill if possible (with my girlfriends orchids).
    Any advice for a first time grower?
    I plan on just having them in a peat/sand mix. Will keeping em waterlogged be fine? Is that too much?
    Thanks in advance for any help!

    yes. peat and sand will be fine. waterlogged will be fine as well.

    I have grown blanchetii and pubescens in pure chopped sphagnum with better success (you may add sand as well). The colonies of these two utrics in peat got quickly overwhelmed with moss and slime.
